Pizza with the Police 5

LAWRENCEVILLE (METRO ATLANTA) GA – May 20, 2016

The Lawrenceville Police Department hosted Pizza with the Police on the Lawrenceville Lawn Thursday, May 19th, with several community groups in attendance. Pizza with the Police brought together local law enforcement, residents and community members in an informal setting to foster relationships over a slice of pizza and desserts.

Sponsored by local businesses – Jet’s Pizza and Blue Rooster Bake Shop and Eatery, the event was marked by a variety of hands-on activities as guests also had the opportunity to tour the Mobile Command Center and view police demos while over 700 slices of pizza and 400 cupcakes were distributed.

“Effective policing strongly supports economic growth by developing an environment residents, tourists and business owners can trust,” said Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson. “Lawrenceville believes in community policing as a tool for establishing confidence and a working relationship between the community and our local law enforcement.”

According to City officials, Pizza with the Police was intended to reaffirm the nature of interactions between law enforcement and the public. The informal nature of the event allowed for several residents and community members to establish relationships with the men and women who protect and serve Lawrenceville residents.

“We were encouraged by community turn-out of our Pizza with the Police event,” said Chief Randy Johnson, Lawrenceville Police Department. “I oversee a team of hard-working officers who are passionate about the community we serve and were excited to host this event for our citizens.”

The Lawrenceville Police Department will be partnering once again with the City this fall to host Rock’n Ribville on September 17, 2016.
